Guest Post: Suzy Walsh on Fall Fashion Trends

Hi friends! It’s been a long time since I had a visitor on WLB, so when Suzy reached out asking to share her thoughts on fall trends and what’s worth investing in, I thought it would be a fun idea! Suzy delves a little deeper into the runway fashion trends than I do, but with NY Fashion Week currently happening and fall trends popping up everywhere, I feel like this is a good time to try something new! What fall trends are you excited to add to your closet?

Incredible Trends From Fall 2015 Worth Buying

Every season we see an amazing range of trends and styles that come from the runways and eventually translate into the choices we make every morning. While spring is known for freshness and new prints, to me fall is the more interesting season for the sheer fact that the scope of experimentation is so huge. In this post, we will cover some of the best trends of fall 2015 from the ready-to-wear  collections and how you can make the most of these ideas within your preferred budget.

The love for cape: While we all know that fall collections are mostly high on coats and outerwear, this time the designers chose to do something a little different with the use of cape. The cape was redefined and reinterpreted as the right thing for outerwear, and you can find many ideas worth stealing from designers like Chalayan, Nanette Lepore, and Christopher Raeburn. Look for  cape inspired outerwear and pair it with your regular sneakers for a very chic weekend look. For sneakers worth drooling, you can visit here.

Turn to a Heavy waist: Big and broad belts are one of the best things to come from fall 2015 collections. These belts are not merely accessories, but you can use them for sectioning a simple outfit, adding style to the otherwise classic looks and even showing off your curves in style. If you are looking for a few ideas, you can check Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Isabel Marant and Givenchy. Wide belts can be found through online stores at various price points, so you don’t have to shell out a big budget for sure.

Amazing patchwork: Patchwork details and prints were a major hit on the runways and probably among the simple trends for anyone to try. If you’re a DIY kind of girl, you can even put something fun together in a weekend and you can craft something on-trend for every single outing. You will be surprised to see how designers like Bottega Veneta have used the concept with monochrome colours to make stunning pieces worth keeping all fall. Other designers that you may want to check include House of Holland, Chloé and Suno for inspiration.

More fringe, please!: Fringe is among the most used elements of fall 2015. You can find it everywhere from clothes to shoes and handbags. The choices are vast and if you’re a bit nervous for something new, I’d say this is one of the safest trends to try. Every few seasons we see fringe come back to the runways, so quite obviously this is one of the trends that will be worth your money in the future, too.  Since you can find larger items like tops and skirts or smaller items like handbags and shoes with a little fringe, this is style you can really make your own . For a few ideas, you can check Nina Ricci, Andrew Gn and Rachel Comey, who have come up with fun ideas.

Happy styling for fall 2015, hoping you found all you wanted for the season!
